Building Notes

This Gothic Revival Style retail building had two floors, with stores occupying first floor spaces and offices above. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer rented space in the Heffernan Building from the mid-1930s until the late 1940s, at least. Like many two-floor retail office blocks erected between 1910-1920, this building featured terra-cotta tiling on its entire facade. It stood on the corner of 6th Avenue and Pine Street.

The Washington State Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) included information on John Graham's Heffernan Building at a 03/04/1922 exhibition of members' work held at the Fine Arts Society Hall in Seattle. Drawings and photos of Graham's Dexter Horton and two large apartment buildings were also shown at this event. (See ""Architects to Exhibit" Seattle Times, 03/26/1922, p. 15.)
